This Mother’s Day will mark approximately three months since my Mom passed. Some of you may have saw my post on Facebook where I wrote, “My Dad lost his beautiful bride on Valentine’s Day!”
Sweet Friends, life has been kicking me in the butt. Since I restarted the blog back in 2018 the ride has been bumpy. At times it feels like I’m on a sailboat going back and forth and ever so slowly, making no progress. All the time wondering if I will ever be where I want to be. In 2020 when the pandemic hit, I knew changes in my life were coming. I sheltered in place, like everyone else, and I started planning my move to the Central Valley. My move back to the Central Valley last July, forced me to pause. Then in 2021 on Valentine’s Day, my Mom passed. The pause that was supposed to be a couple of months, turned longer, and I haven’t written much. Today, being the beginning of May, it felt appropriate to share this “Mother’s Day Gift Guide 2021 and a Story About My Mom.”
My Mom loved flowers and jewelry. She really didn’t wear alot of jewlery but I think as she aged it became more difficult to wear. Flowers always adorned her home and yard. My Mom was a very generous woman. She loved gardening and crafting and baking and giving to others. She really was the perfect Home Maker!
I’ve showed off my parent’s backyard before and you can check it out here. Usually it is full of flowers and blooms this time of year. Unfortunately, as my parents age, the time they spend in the garden has been less. To be honest, there aren’t many flowers blooming in their yard. In fact, just last week my Dad was reminiscing about the impatients he loved planting in the yard. My Mom and Dad’s flower choices have always been different. My Mom loved the impatients, but she also loved Peonies and Hydrangeas and Tulips.
Pausing and reflecting is always important, and on Mother’s Day it’s really the perfect time.
Flowers remind me of Mother’s just like jewelry. What reminds you of your Mother? Last week when I was walking around my Dad’s backyard, this beautiful peony caught my eye. The peony caught my eye because it was one of just a handful of blooms in the yard. My Mom loved peony’s and planted them years ago. Of the many peony plants in her yard, this was the only bloom. It felt sentimental as I strolled through the yard and saw just one peony flowering. One peony bloom on a handful of plants in their yard. Flowers, like jewelry are one of a kind. If you are looking for a one of a kind gift for your Mom, you should check out The Vintage Pearl.
